    Gave her an 8. She had a musical swag that i feel alot of people after her, imitated to varying degrees. Wasn't the strongest vocalist though, an argument can be made for 7.

    8 because of this part of the criteria

    Live singing vs CD singing. Album/Mixtape quality. Longevity. Classic songs/hits. Entire body of work. Do they stand the test of time?

    I give her a 9. Not for her vocals, but because she was a pioneer in the neo soul movement. Plus she was unapologetically herself, despite how weird she is. I mean I still don't know what tf she was talking about in some of them songs...

    I rate her a 7. She has a cool unique soulfoul voice, very smooth. I enjoy her albums and the range of subject matter in her music. She's also a good live performer .

    Never been a big fan of badu but she is a 6 imo. Puts on a good show but her voice isnt the strongest. However I really cant tell the difference between her singing live vs a studio track, and that's a good thing

    I gave her an 8 she has a really good way of delivering and interpreting a song.
    And for some reason her voice always make me think of Diana Ross' Billie Holiday in Lady Sings the Blues

    Badu has quality songs. Next Lifetime/Other side of the game are seriously some of the best songs I've ever heard.

    But, I can't for the life of me decide if she can actually sing or not. :patrice:
